Abstract

The authors of a European Parliament report on palliative care summarise the process of the five-month investigation, as well as the real and potential results of the study. Engaging a large number of national and international stakeholders, including ministries of health, national palliative care associations and the European Association for Palliative Care (EAPC), we were able to draw on a well of previous research and diverse experiences before formulating operative policy options for the EU and its Member States. While the report itself fomented some self-examination in the countries studied, its full exploitation by palliative care advocates is still pending.
